  • Totaly oftopic, what is up with that lampshade, is that dust on it or even mold, or is it just a funky patern, not being funny but it looks like its attact with dust or mold.

    Any way, the topic is awesome, grounding is da bomb.
    Gonna have a look what kinda grounding stuff you will present in other vids.

  • indeed, I totally agree stress can make you sick about 4 years ago I was sick all the time and when I was not I felt my head spinning and could not do anything at my house. I created a habit of listening to relaxing music and created a channel about that. https://youtu.be/7A3WuRJVrDM

  • I’m stressed out all the time and I don’t know how to deal with it in a healthy way. I exercise and eat healthy, but have nobody to talk to who will listen without having an alter I or motive. I wish I had a real friend, but I guess I’m not a good enough person to deserve one:(

  • I’ve been looking for a way to do this for many years. My life has been crap and I really want to get treated or medicated I need help

  • I work in a company that is very much narcissistic. To stay calm I had to go to acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine doctor suggested me tea of Mei gui hua. Very helpful!

  • For me, there are oddly specific things that just piss me off in a specific way and then basically kill my mood for 1 hour and make me irritable.

    Sometimes after gym, when I feel the complete oppossite calm, relaxed feeling and flow of androgenic hormones in my body, I tend to be relaxed, sometimes I am not too careful therefore my bag might fall off the chair where i tried to place it and it somehow activates anger/frustation in me.

    Therefore whenever I notice something that had irriated me and activated stress hormones, I always mentally make sure to remember it, with whichever object/place/action it was related with and to avoid it.

  • 僕は、「ストレス!」っていう、この寸詰まりな語感の言葉自体が嫌い。聞いただけストレス感じたような気分になる。
    同じく、「癌」「冷え(性)」「カフェイン!(の害)」なども。聞いただけで、本当に体にズン!って来たり体温下がったりする。驚くことに。だから昔から冬は「あ~、暑い!」夏は「あ~、寒っ。」って反対の言葉をいうようにしてた。語感に体が反応するのなんとかしたい…。

  • TMI warning but does anyone get a whole bunch of diahrrea when they get super stressed like when I have mental breakdowns I can’t eat anything that day cuz food goes right through me. It goes like this:

    stresses
    gets diahrrea and can’t eat cuz I’m stressed
    gets stressed about trying not to stress so I can eat
    gets stressed about that fact that I can’t stress without getting the shits

    Lmaoooo

  • Now I know how I made it through my childhood and teens. Although my mom left me with my stepfather when I was seven, she was at least nurturing during the times she wasn’t being hysterical. Then on top of that, I played baseball and that helped. I got into running at an early age, but so much stuff piled on by the time I was 12, that I wasn’t really functioning that well anymore. Visits to a child psychologist helped, then I got into drinking. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it, but I did find a release there. I set my development back by years and almost created irreparable damage, but I took my last drink at 33 and with a little bit of luck managed to salvage my life. 20 years later, I haven’t anything big, but I’ve been able to do some degree of the things I always wanted to do. Thanks for this video to help me put things in perspective.

  • When I got Herpes, it was from someone who pretended to be my friend for three years. He knew he had it and he really didn’t give a crap about if I got it or not. He flat out lied to me and told me he had had a clean std test. When I turned up with it a week later, he told me to go to the doctor and ask them for Valtrex and herpes treatment (acyclovir drugs, Penciclovir cream, Oregano oil, Cbd oil). “You will be fine.” He told me. Needless to say, I didn’t have a lot of faith in humanity or men after that happened to me. When I found this Email: [email protected] gmail.com on a private forum I was skeptical and leery at first to believe Doctor Aloha not until he prepared his Herbal Remedy and delivered it to me through Fed-Ex delivery service. I received the Herbal medication within just three days and began the use of the Remedy as instructed and the sores started vanishing. could you believe I was cured of this deadly virus within just 10 days of using this Herbal Medication, I am overjoyed that I am free from this disease and its stigma! at last, I can now afford to be happy and leave a normal life again. Thank you so much Doctor Aloha you can contact him through his Email: [email protected] gmail.com or Call/Text him via his Contact +1 (417) 329-8103

  • I’m a articulated driver, I get this every time when I’m just about to reverse my trailer, I’m perfectly ok if no one is watching but if I know people r watching I get extreme anxiety, I know I can do it but I get in my head I’m going to look stupid or the worst is going to happen. The only way I’ve managed to deal with it is just say bollox to it!!!! And throw myself into that situation to hell with the consequences
    If I listen to funny stuff on the radio or think of comedy In my head that does help sometimes

    The feeling I get just before the situation is severe anxiety and panic, and I turn to jelly. It’s crazy!!! As if I’m on my own I’m perfectly ok, it’s only when I feel people r watching me and judging

These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood. This is the most trustworthy online therapy: https://www.online-therapy.com/?ref=178979

  • Funny story about stress, when the virus hit my country and we began our lockdown I got sick and many conditions matched those of covid-19. I didn’t believe it was but I still took caution and distanced myself. I went to the doctor’s and tried to get a diagnosis but they didn’t know what it was because I didn’t have fever. I felt feverish but my temperature was fine. I was sick over 14 days and my parents still didn’t bring me to testing even though I offered to pay out of my savings myself I didn’t think it was the virus, but I wanted to be 100% certain I didn’t have it. Then on the 17th day I went to see another doctor again and he said it could be chronic stress. Hilarious: the lockdown meant no school to attend physically, meaning less interactions and less social anxiety — the moment my body felt less stressed somehow all these health issues come rushing in.

  • When I was in therapy, and telling certain stories, I would get really emotionally distressed. I asked a couple therapists if they would interrupt me, stop me and guide me back into my body/the present. I even said, “I need you to stop me when I’m getting emotionally heightened. And then basically guide me to take deep breaths to relax.”

    Neither of them would do it. One said he would, but didn’t. The other therapist told other therapists what I’d asked her and one of those therapists basically reprimanded and shamed me for it, in front of a group of other clients plus my own therapist. He said, “It’s not your therapists responsibility to stop you from ranting.”

  • I am so relieved that I have finally found something which works! And it didn`t only work for me. It also worked for people who suffer from this life-ruining condition. Right after making use of this bad breath remedy, my breath became noticeably better in just several hours. My spouse is satisfied to kiss me again! Tip name is Kαyden codomab, I found it on Google.

  • Why fight or flight is a FEAR response, not a STRESS response
    It is a fact that our voluntarily and involuntary muscles are driven by our emotions, particularly when we are afraid or fearful. This ‘flight or fight’ response, or as it is known today as ‘flight fight freezing system’, or FFFS makes your heart race, your internal organs shut down, and primes your muscles to act to defend yourself, or else run for the hills. On the other hand, the simple tensions that occur when we find it hard to make up our minds activate the postural musculature alone, a simple response that shares little in common with the complex neurological and muscular reactions which comprise fear. In other words, see a spider far away and our postural muscles will move because we think, but see a spider on your nose, and all your muscles and a whole lot more will move because we fear. Do these separate instances correspond to the same neurological causes? Of course not. In both cases, you are avoiding the spider, and yet in each case your physiological responses are distinctively different not only in degree but also in kind.
    Moreover, in the former case your behavior is driven because you think, and in the latter, it is because you are in fear. The former is due to cortical processes, and the latter is due to more primitive neural processes, centered in the midbrain, that govern the emotion of fear. This is a very simple distinction, verified conceptually as well as empirically (see appendix of linked book for academic sources), but it has not been explained well or has even been entertained in the copious academic and popular estimate of stress. So, our daily stresses and anxieties are distinctive from our fears. They are indeed separate emotions.
    It is a remarkable fact that we’ve got stress figured out all wrong. Our hard-wired fear responses are responses to threat, not choice, and are governed by different neurological processes from those cortically based processes that underscore anxiety or tension. Secondly, neuromuscular tension due to choice conflict only activates the postural musculature, and the global changes in physiological activity, from a racing heart, hormonal changes, to enhanced alertness, vasodilation, hyperventilation, etc. simply are not characteristic of tension elicited by conflicted thought. Both muscular tension and relaxation are ultimately functions of the relationship rather than content of our choices.

  • Those are your natural responses to protect yourself why would you want to turn them off. Anyone trying to suggest you do different is a demon!

  • Ah, this is why I feel more grounded/calm when I even briefly do a little sewing. And why my, er, “intuition” is always telling me “head down” and “arms up”(stretch…also brings oxygen to the head and upper bod). I think a lot of ppl aren’t going to be comfortable with “standing” on their head, but I think just bending the bod and putting one’s head toward the ground (and letting arms dangle) can bring the same good effect.

  • Appreciate video content! Apologies for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard about Lammywalness Awesome Nights Guide (search on google)?

  • I would like to say thank you for making these videos but would like to state that I have been experiencing anxiety for 7 years now but have been able to manage it after the first attack but now I have been stuck in an everyday cycle, my question is with this everyday cycle can I still do the grounding and heal at the same time?

  • Currently the 100mg of zoloft for my severe anxiety. It only came about maybe 2 years ago this severely. Panic attacks for no reason, today (which is qhy im here now) I’ve literally felt like I’m in fight or flight mode all day. Causing irritable bowl (tmi?), nausea, rises and falls in my blood sugar, and constant panic basically. I hate that the medication I take doesn’t help. It doesn’t mute the feelings. So I’m now looking into more holistic/natural ways of coping.

    If anyone has any other advice. Please let me know. I need the help ��

  • I had a super stressful day. My son is getting married tomorrow so I had a lot of last minute preparations and shopping to do. One of the Most important things I needed to get was not available and since it was late, everything was closed. Then I got home late and was worried about not getting enough sleep. I tried to sleep and I could not fall asleep for anything! At first, I was calm, just couldn’t sleep. After a couple hours, I started to feel other symptoms of anxiety and it just got worse and worse. I finally became sleepy but once I try to sleep, my brain starts thinking really irrational things. This is really unusual for me. I usually sleep very well and rarely have panic attacks. I also have another stressful situation coming up in the near future, plus covid is making things stressful as well. I think it all caught up to me at once. But why, on a super important day?! When it’s so important for me to be present!

On the other hand, the simple tensions that occur when we find it hard to make up our minds activate the postural musculature alone, a simple response that shares little in common with the complex neurological and muscular reactions which comprise fear. In other words, see a spider far away and our postural muscles will move because we think, but see a spider on your nose, and all your muscles and a whole lot more will move because we fear. Do these separate instances correspond to the same neurological causes? Of course not. In both cases, you are avoiding the spider, and yet in each case your physiological responses are distinctively different not only in degree but also in kind.

    Moreover, in the former case your behavior is driven because you think, and in the latter, it is because you are in fear. The former is due to cortical processes, and the latter is due to more primitive neural processes, centered in the midbrain, that govern the emotion of fear. This is a very simple distinction, verified conceptually as well as empirically (see appendix of linked book for academic sources), but it has not been explained well or has even been entertained in the copious academic and popular estimate of stress. So, our daily stresses and anxieties are distinctive from our fears. They are indeed separate emotions.

    It is a remarkable fact that we’ve got stress figured out all wrong. Our hard-wired fear responses are responses to threat, not choice, and are governed by different neurological processes from those cortically based processes that underscore anxiety or tension. Secondly, neuromuscular tension due to choice conflict only activates the postural musculature, and the global changes in physiological activity, from a racing heart, hormonal changes, to enhanced alertness, vasodilation, hyperventilation, etc. simply are not characteristic of tension elicited by conflicted thought. Both muscular tension and relaxation are ultimately functions of the relationship rather than content of our choices.

  • There’s an easy way. It’s called HALDOL. Everyone should be FORCED on it. We also need the Democrats to be the only political party. Yes.

  • Had a fall and landed square on my nose. It swole up so bad cutting off the breathing through it. When I can’t breathe I can’t sleep. The swelling went down and I’m breathing better, but the fight or flight response has been jerking me out of falling asleep ever since for fear of suffocating. Got to wait for the doctor to see me about the nose. How do I tell my fight or flight response to let go of the fear of falling asleep and just let happen? Thanks!

  • Thank you very much for this video.
    Now I have finally understood that the triggers of anxiety can bypass thinking part of the brain, which is exactly what I noticed happening to me. (Lack of control over fight, flight, freeze response)

  • you are so calming i love it! imagine having someone like this or even a therapist as a mother ugh the dream:,) ❤️ i hope you have a lovely day ma’am

  • IBS flare pain for me causes extreme anxiety and panic,can you give some advice of how to deal with real physical pain making us anxious and scared (in my case of IBS: going out,eating,even going to the bathroom scares me to death )

  • I often know logically I’m okay, but stress in the world, and horrible people, or the neighbor’s dogs constantly barking can induce a flight, flight, or faint (sadness short-term, depression if chronic) response. I need to tell my body I’m not in any danger of dying. I couldn’t understand what she was saying as far as nonajenic relaxation, though. Could anyone understand her?

  • So use the word response instead of using the word “disorder” which has also become very offensive to a lot of people. It’s a word that has been seriously abused by a certain system for too long. We all need humane healing. Thank you.

  • Scientific study on physical/electrical contact with the Earth:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3265077/
    There’s also a documentary called “Heal For Free” that tells about many amazing experiences with the many healing and health benefits it promotes.
    Here’s the original (before it was updated) on you tube: https://youtu.be/cRW0XO2xWn4
    I highly recommend “earthing”. Just lay down on the grass, with skin contacting the ground, and focus on breathing, or nature sounds, or something else that is meditative and relaxing. You can even take a nap that way. I find then after only ten minutes I feel much calmer, and actually feel a noticeable alertness. It’s better than any nap I’ve ever had.

  • 3.25 Or, not to help is solve our (self created, mind based ) problems, but rather to realize that there is, was or ever will be such a thing as a “problem”, and we have none of it. It is just a mental game we are playing with ourselves, when we are still identified as the person/ego, thinking we are our thoughts, feelings, emotions, sense perception, memory and so on.

    Great tips, and thanks once again.

  • Just found this channel by happenstance & boy do I need it. I think I have developed adrenal insufficiency due to the constant stress I’m experiencing.

  • I feel like my brain is permanently damaged from stress. I can’t focus, find socializing extremely difficult, find it very difficult to make a decision or plan anything and have no real dreams or ambition, I have been this way for years and years. Exercise and meditation do help but it’s such an uphill struggle and my brain just feels like it’s been torn to shreds all the time, although with some respite from meditation and exercise.

  • What if your own body is causing said trauma? I have a chronic disease and whenever I focus on my body, I am basically reminded of it

  • Чаще всего наше плохое настроение и повышенную нервозность мы склонны списывать на напряженный темп жизни, неурядицы, стрессы, конфликты и пр. Это, конечно, верно. Но мало, кто отдает отчет в том, что дурное настроение может быть связано с недостатком в организме микроэлемента селена и кислорода! Я научилась это контролировать, нашла для себя вариант в виде активной воды Стэлмас цинк селен или во время спорта 02. Реально повышает выносливость! Теперь делаю спокойно кардио 40 минут. Еще земетила, что головные боли ушли не хрустят кости.

  • Just to note that grounding will not remove ptsd triggers because they are reactionary. I don’t know, maybe you can remind yourself to be mindful before being triggered to avoid it happening, but mindfulness and hyper vigilance are probably very close when you practice being mindful too much. Point is you should probably avoid putting things which trigger some peoples ptsd in your video about mental health. Not relevant to me, but it is for some people. Otherwise obviously it’s good advice and a good reminder even if you already know how to practice grounding techniques.

  • This is the channel I have been looking for. A well explained straight to the point exercise on decreasing anxiety. Great job!

    I’m practicing this for myself. As I can almost never behave in a social environment, and miss so many great opportunities.

  • Thank you. I’m working on calming my over-reactive body, and these ideas will help. I do wonder, though, about social interaction. It’s clear that hugs & warm feelings do calm, but I often find that being with people also brings over-stimulation. How do you view this?

  • It’s calming just listening to your soothing voice. I find it helpful to do deep breathing 4sec breath in, 4 sec hold and 8 sec breath out. Walking in nature and paying attention to what you see, hear and smell also helps.

  • Thank you so much. I love your channel. So helpful. And so many of us are struggling. Most of my life I didn’t even realize i had PTSD or my anxiety and behaviours were related to childhood trauma. Keep posting. You are a light in the darkness. ��

  • Hey!!! Do have any preference for my illness… I’m sick at it…. I’ve been in brain chronic for about 2yrs every 24 7… I feel like my brain dying… I don’t know what’s happening inside my brain…. Doctors can’t even diagnosed it whenever I speak to them… I have spoken to some doctors they only says that I have any stress……. I don’t feel myself usual like I was before it happened to me…… Help me if you could……..

    Thank You

  • I had a nightmare last night. I was at the university and I was worrying about the lesson that was about to start. I decided to leave before it started. I actually have done that quite a lot in real life. But the dream made me realise that I’ve been doing that, because I have anxiety. And that it is a fight or flight response.

  • Deep relaxation music immediately releases the anxiety and tension without having to try. Whereas noticing my body when anxious just draws attention to all the “symptoms” of anxiety. These days people could easily have their favourite relaxation music on their person wherever they go by saving it to a mobile device or even pocket music device specifically for this purpose. With some inner ear headphones you could do this practically anywhere at any time. Just step away from a difficult conversation or meeting and go to the hallway, stairwell, garden, bathroom, or an empty meeting room, put your headphones in and ahhh calm.:)

  • Maybe a modified form of standing on your head will also do wonders. Even lying down with a bolster under your lower back and raising your legs in the air is really good. Or bent legs with feet on floor if that is all you are able to do, still very, very beneficial

  • Thank you, this is a very helpful video. I was diagnosed with anxiety for years until a perceptive GP recognised that there was perhaps something physiological causing my symptoms. She was right I had Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS) and was diagnosed after some testing. Prior to this I had seen cardiologists, neurologists, none of whom spotted the condition and as a result, blamed many debilitating symptoms on anxiety it’s a condition that’s easy to miss unless you know exactly what to look and test for. I’ve since learned that a small group of people who have been diagnosed with chronic anxiety actually have PoTS, so I would be interested to know if this is a condition that you have come across and if you know the signs to look out for. Perhaps it would help some of your patients who have gone undiagnosed for years. Now that I know more about the condition I had been receiving good treatment it has helped to calm my anxiety as I know what I’m dealing with instead of thinking my symptoms were all in my head and I was a hypochondriac. Thanks again for the videos x

  • Greatthought ��…FYI I’m following #drjohnaking.I often read his work on PTSD, you might appreciate them also. I have personally found them to be particularly rewarding.

  • I really really reallyyyy lol love ur videos! Just by hearing ur voice I feel a sense of healing taking place esp during these times with so many drastic changes this is so needed for me and everyone going through it! Thank youuu!

  • Hey love your videos pls can you do a video about claustrophobia? I really struggle with it and it’s getting worse. Please if you have any tips that would help. Thank you.

  • Hello, I come to give my own feelings and my little stone to the building. The stress, that entity that eats away at you inside and well I was able to fight it (I’m a salesperson and I used to be the boss of a company) and almost completely remove it. There are a lot of solutions circulating on the internet and in the press so if you want us to discuss them nicely you can contact me at this email address: [email protected] com (pasted dot to address and com to dot). I usually answer more in the evening. Go courage ��!

    Have a good day,

  • Or, instead of doing “something slow every day”. Go about life for real, and begin to live life fully NOW, and do EVERYTHING slowly, until it is integrated and you could do it naturally without any effort or mental chatter about it.

    Living meditation, with deep breathing, is the key to experiencing life itself, which is what you/we essentially are.

    Thank u.

  • I think there’s a 4th reflex response float. By floating I mean going into a dream-like withdrawn state. Sometimes when people face an overwhelming crisis, they withdraw, give up trying and just daydream, or become reclusive. You could say that addictions are a floating response. The person’s attention focuses on the drug or drink they are addicted to and this protects them from the world which seems too complex or difficult to manage. Perhaps some forms of insanity are examples of floating. It’s a way of giving up and not trying to make things work any more. So I believe that there are 4 reflex responses fight, flight, freeze and float.

  • It’s so easy to say sleep when you need to. I have had insomnia from early childhood due to abuse. Sleep is like gold and just as hard to find.

  • 1) Meditative Breathing Asthma says no.
    2) Mindfulness I live in a very noisy neighbourhood, high crime, neighbours from hell, alcoholic mother. This isn’t going to work.
    3) Laughter FFS
    4) Biorhythms Sleep does not came naturally or easily, plus see point 2 above. Also it’s easy to say eat when you’re hungry if you have money and don’t have to ration your food or choose between heating, medicine or eating.
    5) The one legitimate thing on the list.
    6) FFS Again.
    7) Stretching Useless. Massage find me someone willing to do it for free or are you offering?
    8) Applicable to gymnasts.

  • I am a basketball player, i have a problem before every match, every sort of adredaline i start to feel sick and start vomiting, if somebody feels the same or know some way to fix that let me know

  • Btw learning to remove your adrenaline rush is one of the best steps into getting closer to hyper focus cause the adrenaline rush clogs your flow and prevent your body from moving on instinct due to panic ( this is only my opinion / hypothesis) i have no data or proof to show this…but i think its a good point

  • Inhale for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 4 seconds, exhale for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds them repeat. This is what a marine said once that helps stop your fight or flight response.

  • I’m not a english native speaker, but I understood everything he said. So I’m learning neuroscience and improving my english at the same time!

  • I find that prolonging the exhalation is stressful for me. So I just relax, let go, just mindfully WATCH my breath. That is the method taught in Zen.

  • This video is complete bullshit. She is just promoting her ” grounding activities” but she never actually tells us what are the activities. Sounds like we may have to sign up and pay money to learn the secret. My advice: it’s all about the breathing, deep breaths exhale slowly. Or try the Wim Hoff method, he has a YT tutorial without the preamble bulls**t.

  • how do i figure out what my emotions are trying to tell me then? Therapy? I definitely have trauma so im sure that’s the issue lol thank you so much

  • Thank you for posting these videos, I have just subscribed�� I’m new and can already see this channel is going to work wonders to improve my mental wellbeing…thank you ❤️❤️❤️

  • I don’t see how #3 and #6 can help, bcuz the desire for connection and closeness with others, others take advantage of and is also a breeding ground for negativity, like gossiping and talking smack for one. And then watching stupid Youtube videos, there are better ways for laughter. These just seems to me like a monkey wrench to turning off stress. I believe that we can get a false sense of stress relieve under the cloak of codependency and laughter. So since it’s false, something will challenge that false sense of relief, like narcissism, that will cause the false connection to break up.

    And many if not most comedians lead empty lives and suffer depression. Like in Smokey Robinson’s old song: The Tears of a Clown When There’s No One Around. Which is true. So followers of laughter are also in the same boat, and I would just say not to take yourself or life too seriously. That relieves a lot of stress. Like for example, someone I was talking to the other day was complaining about a child’s behavior. A baby in fact. A five year old baby. Talking about the baby like she’s a monster and terrorist instead of taking it easy and understanding that she’s a baby. I just shook my head.

    I prefer true stress relief to a false sense of it bcuz I know that the subconscious mind is very good at playing tricks on us. Like making us feel like we have relieved some stress by being close to someone. And multitasking is in a woman’s nature, so women are made to do more than one thing at a time.

  • Please can you advise me what is going on in my brain. Most days I fear death and wondering what is the point of living and when we all have to die. I go crazy in my mind and start suffering bad aches in the front of my brian and in my neck too. I panic alot, and become very negative and sucidal

  • What happens when fight flight constantly occurs in your vivid dreams every night, how does someone control that and always wake tired. Is that a rare condition?

  • Im currently stressing over my future plans! Rhis virus ourbreak has caused internal family struggles! then my sister gets pregnant a second damn time, with my dad already out of work because no planes are flying, im stressing over a girl i wanna meet at my favorite restaurunt im worrying she won’t be there! Im stressing over a lit of stuff, today i feel very weak!

  • As you are slowly breathing out imagine you are sinking into fragrant warm foamy bath after rest of family have gone long trip. Or flopping into armchair shedding bags after finishing Christmas shopping. For ladies only. Men don’t do fragrant or Christmas shopping.

  • I just came back from a freediving trip with my brother. He’s British champion and world no.5 Mike Board, his record is 111 metres. On one breath. I learned some new tricks!

    Like you, I’ve always taught deep breathing using the diaphram. I’m a martial artist, and practice Qi Gong, so this I know the benefits well. It’s the first tactic I turn to when feeling tension in my body, which is my signal that I”m suffering anxiety (though I just learned this is not a fight or flight response, it’s a different neurological response related to learning).

    Anyway, in freediving you are not breathing! To state the obvious… so the key is mindful awareness. Aware of your body and the FEELINGS and sensations of the dive. You have to learn to trust this sensory information through practice rather than your body’s “urge to breathe” which is a reaction to CO2 build-up in the lungs (your body wants to expel the CO2). You also have to occupy your mind, with positive thoughts that you can mentally stay with… so that negativity doesn’t creep in. For athletes like my brother, they take this to a much more practised state of mindfulness and can get there fast…

    I’ve made a video essay about it if interested: a freediving journey into the neuroscience of emotional learning. Based on the insights from the book Emotions, Learning and your Brain by Prof. Mary Helen Immordino-Yang.

  • 1:32 try to be relaxed when you get up at 5.45, drive to job for almost an hour, at 7.15 boss is squeezing maximum out of you and you are a night �� who would normally go to sleep at 1.30 and not at 23.00, wake up at 7.30 and not at 5.45.
    I’m at the point where I hate this job just because of that.

  • I have recently read a book called Transcendental Meditation by Bob Roth. I would recommend that you check out Transcendental Meditation as opposed to mindfulness and other forms.

  • People should realise focusing on doing one thing is so crucial in reducing anxiety. Paying attention to the task at hand is really calming

  • 20 years ago I had a single panic attack that turned into panic disorder with agoraphobia. 7 years ago I became calm and even started going out on my own. But 8 months ago my panic disorder came back and I cant even go to a store. I want to be calm again but still dont know where this came from or why it happened especially when I love the out doors. I hate this so much

  • Mam
    Fight or flight response any treatment please…… My body numbness and tingling. And bowel syndrome hard. Urinary problem. And headache. All time I’m anxious and anxiety..

  • That’s crazy.:/ I’ve been stressed constantly since the age of 3 and I’m now 32, maybe my brain has shrunk or whatever but my conciousness has returned to a good spot, but then those two battle each other for balance, then the world around me reacts to my every thought and feeling which makes it go in a circle �� RELAX, DONT WORRY BE HAPPY

  • What if breathing exercises don’t work? My problem is that, as opposed to breathing heavier, I forget to breathe. I’ve tried to remind myself, but normally I’m so panicked that I forget to do even that, so exercises don’t ever work since I forget them. It also normally happens during times where I can’t just stop and breath or leave the environment (I.e. required public speaking in school).

  • “How stress affects your body”
    Ad pops up
    Me: got stressed because the ad said “baby diapers for kids up to 11years old adolescents”

  • And if it gets too relaxed you can get palpitations!! Gah!! You can also just squash you throat where your vagal nerve is just press it…bam.

  • None of that stuff works tbh. Atleast not for me. I tried all that and it just doesnt work. I dont even do negative self talk and still my body just goes berzerk. People got different body types, e.g.: Neurotic or a person who falls under neuroticisim.

  • Why is their nothing to be afraid off with nukes flying overhead. It would be better to run like hell and hide in the ground someplace

  • I have noticed, that chronic depression/anxiety tends to develop when uncleared F&Fs “overstack”, for example where you have had to deal with psychologically or mentally intense problem, or where you have let your thoughts to run wild when thinking about the same, old happening over and over, which makes you even more anxious, frustated, depressed which then progressively overstacks.

    This is why you need to know your triggers, whether these are short-term triggers or ones based on long-term uncertainity/worry and find every possible way to avoid falling into the same trap again.

  • I punched a guy because he tried to snatch my book away. BTW it was an upper cut but I was lucky enough to slow down that punch or I did be in serious trouble

  • I like to do deep breathing while doing Tai Chi with my wakizashi (Japanese short sword), petting my cat, walks in the woods, building models, playing guitar, and shooting guns. These are all very focused tasks which bring me peace and joy and skill while practicing.

  • But I cannot laugh or cry, for years. I have chronic depression & am alone most of my time. None of the many breathing exercises I have tried help they just add to the stress & push my already high blood pressure right up to danger level. (Standing on my head would probably kill me.) I can’t ‘just calm down’ because I suffer from anxiety. You need to already be ok for these suggestions to work, but I’m not ok.:\ Thanks anyway. It’s nice hearing your friendly, pleasant voice at least.

  • Listening to music can have a tremendously relaxing effect on our minds and bodies, especially slow, quiet classical music. This type of music can have a beneficial effect on our physiological functions, slowing the pulse and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the levels of stress hormones.

  • Ok… uhm. I thought blood goes to the arns and the legs because contrary to what you said we can’t live without during fight or flight. How are we going to flight with no legs? So you are dispensing somewhat erroneous information. Blood is diverted from the digestive tract because digestion is not important when faced with a stressor. Your welcome.
